iPad Game Review for WordSeek St Patrick App

WordSeek St. Patrick Overview

WordSeek St. Patrick is an iPad Games app that features a smooth and intuitive user interface, easy to learn gameplay, and very simple graphics in various shades of Shamrock green. The overall style of this mobile app is very similar in appearance to the familiar crossword and word search puzzle books that you often see at your local grocery store, and sometimes in regular magazines.

Since this word search game focuses on St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and Irish culture, you will comes across 90+ familiar and not-so-familiar words throughout. There are 12 words to search and find per puzzle topic and timed gameplay to “outbest” your best score.

The WordSeek St. Patrick app opens to a book graphic on the home screen. The 8 word search puzzle game topics are listed like chapters in a book. They include: Life of St. Patrick, Irish Counties, Patron Saints, Irish Names, Letters of St. Patrick, It’s Irish, Irish Words, and Irish Towns and Cities. Many of the words in this app relate to the history of St. Patrick and his tie to Ireland, but my favorite words in this iPad app pertain to the Irish language and symbols. Some of my favorite Irish words are “blarney,” “scallywag,” “gibberish,” and “craic.” Since these terms may be unfamiliar to a lot of people, the addition of definitions for all these colorful Irish words would be a really nice touch to this word puzzle app.

To Start A Game

To begin a game, simply select your topic of choice. As mentioned before, this word search game has timed gameplay that begins the second you select your puzzle topic. So there is no time to waste. Words are hidden throughout the letter grid and you can find them by looking for them horizontally, vertically, diagonally, forwards and even backwards.

Once you find your hidden word in the grid, just swipe on the word and it will be highlighted. There are sound effects for when you select the word correctly and sounds for when you don’t. Personally, I don’t like any of them. The “chirping” is odd when the correct word is found and the blunt buzzer sound is a bit jarring when you don’t. And the round of applause when your puzzle board is complete is just uninspiring. The app’s sound effects would have been a perfect place for the developer to interject some of that lively Irish personality and humor that we’re all fond of. However, the developer does give you the option to turn the game sounds off if you want to.

During gameplay when you identify each word correctly, you will see the word get checked off the list and your found word is highlighted in green on the game board. The timer in the upper right will continue tracking your time until all the words are found. When complete, your best time score will display on the home screen next to the word puzzle title. All the games are repayable in this St Patrick’s Day word search app; however, the game board is the same each time. Regardless, it will still be a challenge for you to “out best” your last best score.
